During the Democratic primaries in 2008, I asked a liberal friend of mine whether he was going to support Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. He thought for a second and casually responded, “Obama.”
I asked him why he would support Obama over Clinton, given that they had basically the same proposals but she had more experience and we knew so much more about her.
His answer, in essence, was: “Obama!”
